So yesterday I skipped work and went to the Chiropractor in the morning to try a fix my bung neck and mouse shoulder. I decided cause I’d be getting the quieter tube at 10am, I could take some stuff to work to store (cds, books, beach towels, amp).
So I walk out of the chriopractor and the handle of the paper bag I was carrying the stuff in broke. Had to lugg it under my arm, with the amp in the other hand and my handbag swung round my back. Totally undid the chiro work..
So because of that and the memories of lugging an ironing board, iron, clothes horse, doona, two pillows and hairdryer home from Argos (f’n kill me), I’ve decided to hire a man in a van to move all my stuff from Clapham North to Hackney – my new home! The move in the van with old mate Wilson takes place tonight at 7pm. If you haven’t heard from me please send out the search party.
So yesterday was a beautiful day in bustling London town! We shot at seven different pianos around East London and had an amazing time. Apart from the insent bells, chronic wind and a few junkies with balloons, everything ran smoothly and we even caught the Wimbeldon final at a pub for lunch.
Thanks to Greg Davenport, Steph and Jo for being so awesome!
So thought I’d get on the World Press wagon so I can let you know the latest.
Tomorrow – Sunday July 4th – I’ll be playing pianos around East London making a clip!! Um.. I’m just a wee bit excited! So if you’re a Londoner, follow me on Twitter (@larissamckay) and hopefully you can catch some of the live action. The lovely Greg Davenport will be the man behind the lens and it’s going to be a great day by the river. *It is with regret that my first real film clip will not have my sis in it, it’s her life long dream. Next time Laur.
After a billion (well not really, but it felt like that) shows throughout May and June I have taken a little time off to sleep mainly, write more, move flats and do the clip. So my next gig is July 29th at Tommy Flynn’s in Camden – so hope you can all make it.
I’m on the Scout for a band – guitar, drums and bass – so if anyone’s keen, comment on the blog and let’s make some magic.
